Director SS Rajamouli says that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu did not approve his idea of Telugu Talli installation at the Central Hall of Assembly in Amaravati.

Chandrababu Naidu was apparently not happy with UK-based architects' designs of Amaravati and the CM had requested SS Rajamouli to give a touch of Telugu culture for these designs. Having met the architects in London, the Baahubali creator recently gave a presentation of his views, which did not impress the CM.

Rajamouli himself has confirmed the news about it. "Everybody liked the design I have prepared for the government buildings reflecting Telugu culture. But the chief minister did not okay them. He liked the tower design for the state assembly building prepared by the UK architects and everybody endorsed it," he told Great Andhra.

Meanwhile, the director says that Chandrababu Naidu assured to make use of his designs for other building. "The chief minister, however, assured that he would make use of my designs for media city," SS Rajamouli added.

This morning, SS Rajamouli tweeted the video featuring his design of Telugu Talli installation. The director also wrote: "This is one of the ideas that I proposed.. Thanking @ncbn garu for giving me the opportunity to explore new avenues."

In this video, SS Rajamouli explains, "Our ancient astronomers and architects studied the path of sun to millimeter perfection and built temples in such a way that the sun rays touch the idol deep in the temple at specific times every year. Inspired by them, this idea is to pay tribute to "Telugu Thalli" at the beginning of Assembly Sessions."
